About Me


Create an echological hostel in the mayan riviera


I dont think u can describe yourself in a few lines but if u read this u'll get to know a little bit of me and waaay more if you get to know me personally ;); ok as you see i love traveling, meeting travelers "free spirits" as i call them and love exploring different cultures, i am a very curious guy, i consider myself as a very open person, extroverted, spontaneous, optimistic, i love to talk, laugh, have fun and enjoy every moment of life, the feeling of independence is very important for me, i dont like people that controls me or strangles me (figure speaking); i am very active and energetic guy maybe thats why i love to travel so much, so as long as i have energy and money i will see as much as the world and some day i will settle down in the mayan riviera with my own echological hostel ;)


Que es lo que se pierde al cruzar una frontera? Cada momento parece partido en dos, melancolia por lo que queda atras y por otro lado todo el entusiasmo por entrar en tierras nuevas

Translation (more less): What do you loose when you cross a frontier? Every moment seems to be split in two, melancholy for all that you have left behind but all the enthusiasm for entering new lands.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have always believe that people are good by nature
but the media just shows the bad part of it which is only a tiny percent and that scares people to travel and meet strangers but projects like Couch Surfing just makes you believe in human kind and believe me you will never get disappointed. All you need is love right!

Mi couch es tu couch!! =)

What started as a useful website, turned into a life style, not only is great to meet people and their culture while u travel, but u can also bring this kind of people into ur own house!!, i have experience both hosting and surfing, and i have met so many wonderful and interesting people, is just people with so many mutual interests!! meeting this kind of people helps you to open your personal box (mind) and u will never be the same again!

Teach, Learn, Share

I am sure you will be able to learn something from me as i am sure i will learn something from you ;)

I think that we all can learn from each other, we all are individual worlds waiting to be discovered, ok listen to this:

Never refuse an invitation
Never resist the unfamiliar
Never fail to be polite
and never outstay your welcome

Just keep your mind open
and suck in the experience
and if it hurts you know what...
it's probably worth it!

You hope, and you dream but you never believe that something is going to happen for you not like it does in the movies and when it actually does
you expect it to feel different more visceral more real...

i was waiting for it to hit me
i still believe in paradise but now at least i know it's not some place you can look for cause it's not where you go it's how you feel for a moment in your life and if you find that moment...

it lasts forever!!
